A duo of doctor and engineer seems like ideal leadership for a company that aims to deliver prescription drugs, quickly, to patients with chronic conditions.
In Pharmeasy, Dhaval Shah (the doctor) and Dharmil Sheth (the engineer) have created a pharmaceutical delivery company with an emphasis on logistics. The Mumbai-based firm serves India, one of the largest markets in the world—a country where many residents lack easy access to prescriptions, even though the nation is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of generic medications.
PharmEasy has been around since 2015, but its services have taken on an essential prominence during the COVID-19 pandemic. It reportedly serves more than 700 cities, delivering both medications and diagnostic services, and has raised more than $300 million.
